CSI fans, ppl interested in this subject
Read in August, 2009, read count: once
I've read that some people feel this was written in a magazine article way and I have to disagree. I'm not sure if it was meant to insinuate that this would be a bad thing or not but either way I thought it was written just fine and not like a long article at all.
I think Reavill did pretty good job with the book overall, I learned a lot of things I had no idea about during the course of reading. I had never thought once about who cleans up these crime scenes and I especially never stopped to think about what happened before companies like Aftermath were started.
Reavill included a decent number of personal accounts of actual crime scenes where he went along with a crew to clean up along with facts about how Aftermath got started and the lives of the two owners as well as his own.
There aren't enough personal accounts of crimes or crime scenes to make a true crime reader happy with that alone. I think I'd recommend this to friends who like memoirs, CSI, crime facts in general. I also look forward to reading another book by Reavill that he wrote with Susan Smith's ex-husband.
